A combined retrospective and exhibition of the work of Isaki Lacuesta, curated by Sylvie Pras and coordinated by Judith Revault, has just been held at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris in 2018. The exhibition presented two new installations namely Echo Images and Double Films, which recreate images by combining previous creations and new sequences filmed in different parts of the world.

 

The two video installations unveiled in Paris are now being presented in Catalonia as part of an exhibition entitled "Echo Images". This exhibition incorporates two additional works: a video installation entitled The Third Side of the Moon la Lluna, which the artist has created especially for the Chapel of Sant Nicolau in Girona and Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona, in partnership with Girona-based sculptor Pep Admetlla, and Lunaby, a video-poem that Isaki Lacuesta has dedicated to his daughter Luna.

 

This exhibition comprises a trilogy of large-format video installations and a video-poem that highlight Isaki Lacuesta's creative capacity as a visual artist. This aspect of his work, developed throughout his career, is characterised by an overlapping of disciplines, experimentation with formats and a collaborative work model with other creators that has generated fascinating works offering a rich variety of perspectives, voices and combinations.

 

This exhibition is a co-production of Bòlit, Center for Contemporary Art, Arts Santa Mònica, Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya and Pompidou Center.

In collaboration with the Institut Ramon Llull and the Center for Contemporary Art Fabra i Coats.

With the support of the Banc de Sabadell Foundation.

He collaborated with LOOP Festival, Cinema Truffaut, Museu del cinema and the Filmoteca de Catalunya.
